Excerpt: The memos, which detail Comey’s interactions with Trump in the first months of the administration before his firing in May 2017, were sent to Congress by the Justice Department late Thursday.
In a damning statement written by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the lawmakers accused Comey of showing political bias by having “at least two different standards in his interactions with others.” “He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump,” the statement said, noting that Comey has claimed he had concerns about Lynch's credibility to such an extent that he took on a more public role in the 2016 Hillary Clinton email probe. Yet only memos on Trump discussions appear to exist.
TRUMP: FLYNN'S LIFE 'DESTROYED' WHILE COMEY ALLOWED TO 'LEAK AND LIE'
The committee chairmen mocked Comey, known for his descriptive flair, for including details about “extraneous facts” such as when he felt complimented.
The lawmakers also accused Comey of being “blind to biases” within the FBI and having “terrible judgment” with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe -- who was fired after an investigation found that he had lied to Comey and to FBI agents about his role in leaks about a probe into the Clinton Foundation. The lawmakers noted that the memos say he defended McCabe’s character to Trump -- even as Comey now acknowledges McCabe lied.
The memos come on the heels of the release of Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” which also detailed Comey’s account of interactions with Trump, as well as his dim view of the president’s conduct in office.
They include details about conversations, including discussions of lurid allegations that Trump saw prostitutes in Moscow in 2013 and that Trump told the then-FBI chief that he “demanded loyalty and expected loyalty.” Read the full article: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/20/key-lawmakers-say-comeys-memos-show-terrible-judgmen
